I added the idea of area=yes for mini_roundabouts tagged as a circular way.
A node tagged as mini_roundabout is not touched by this idea.

well it is traverable (in the sense of being able to traverse) by all 
vehicles. That this is not allowed for all vehicles may be adressed out 
of the roundabout-property by any application using it.
This is a malus only for applications that
1) are able to do routing across areas (most router don't do that yet 
afaik) and
2) don't know about the roundabout issue to handle it separately

sure, didn't propose that (at least didn't intend to propose it)

This is probably a valid point, and yes; but it's again only a 
contradiction for routing, and again only under the two assumptions from
